I'm on levothyroxine 25 mcg i was on 50 but my blood pressure goes up and down is it medicated related? Or my anxiety? Today is 126/93 pulse 79
Probably not: Any time you feel you may be having side effects you need to see your doctor. 25 mcg of levothyroxine is a very low dose and should not effect bp. Your doctor is probably monitoring the dose by checking your TSH level. Also be aware that some thyroid tests are reported as high when they are not really if you are taking estrogen or bcp. At 22 diastolic of 93 is high and needs evaluaion. ...Read more

I've been on 75mcg of levothyroxine 6 days total now. I'm having heart fluttering and anxiety. Can i stop taking until my doc is back from vacation?
Yes!: If you've never been on thyroid replacement before, it's entirely possible that starting on that dose could cause palpitations in susceptible people. In such cases, it's recommended that you start at 25, then 50, then 75 with at least 1-2 weeks between dose changes. I'd stop for now and talk further with your doctor. ...Read more

I've been prescribed levothyroxine. But it gives me bad anxiety, panic attacks, palpitations. Could my heart be bad? What can I do about anxiety?
Have thyroid retest: Your thyroid should be retested in case the dose is too high. Your heart is likely fine, but talk to your doctor about your concerns. There are different forms of thyroid as well. Your dr should know how to treat anxiety. See a psychologist for therapy and a psychiatrist if your own doctor prefers to refer you for medication. Get good sleep, exercise reasonably, keep a healthy diet and consider yoga, meditation, and or acupuncture as alternatives. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
